Join us to welcome special guests from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) for a presentation and discussion at our farm.
This Saturday April 14th
Noon to 1pm.
For a potluck lunch.
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a community-based farmworker organization leading the struggle for fair wages and working conditions in the US agriculture industry. Join representatives from the CIW and the Student/Farmworker Alliance for an interactive presentation on the Campaign for Fair Food. Hear what day to day life is like for farmworkers, and why they began to organize for change. We share the analysis, history and strategy of the campaign, focusing largely on the role of allies. Finally, hear about the current moment – what changes are beginning to happen in the fields, and how can we as consumers stand with farmworkers in the struggle for justice?
